This week’s Inside Edition with ReadyTalk Engineering highlights a day in the life of our UX Design Engineer, Pete Kinser. Pete has been with ReadyTalk for almost 4 months and brings more than 10 years of experience in the field to the team. He has been an awesome addition, and even though he did go to theUniversityofMissouriwe have high hopes for him here at ReadyTalk.

Inside Edition with Pete Kinser:


  •  Describe a typical day for you at ReadyTalk
    My day usually begins by grabbing a quick snack in the kitchen (banana, almonds, green tea and the occasional yogurt). I settle into my desk and chat with the other UX guy at ReadyTalk. Generally, we regroup over what's happened the day before and talk through potential design solutions for various projects. The bulk of my day is spent meeting with various teams to learn about new projects, to understand potential roadblocks and to contribute to the development discussion form a user experience perspective.

 


  • Why do you think ReadyTalk is the #1 company to work for in Colorado?
    There's a sense of shared optimism in the work we're doing. No idea is too big or too small. The teams are focused on executing at a high level. The customer is always the priority.

 

 


  • Tell us about your favorite day at work….
    My favorite day at work is full of tests. Usability tests. Working with users to better understand how our designs work, or don't, helps to bring a lot of insight and energy to the design process. Being able to integrate user feedback into our designs helps build highly useful, usable and desirable products.

 

 


  • If someone were interested in working on your team @ReadyTalk what advice would you have for them?
    Love what you do. There's a lot of passion with the walls of ReadyTalk. I'd wager most people invest time outside of ReadyTalk to continue to learn about their discipline. We're engaged with our professional organizations, actively pursue continuing learning opportunities, and contributors to the knowledge bases for our communities.
